in Linux is a major pain, isn't it?
I had the same problem as you, viz. audio worked perfectly for all the multimedia applications except for XBMC
. I solved it by installing all the PulseAudio configuration tools:
- Code: Select all
equo install paprefs pavucontrol paman padevchooser pavumeter
and then launching the PulseAudio Volume Control GUI:
Kickoff > applications > Multimedia > Volume Control (PulseAudio Volume Control)
I clicked on the Configuration tab and changed:
a) the Profile for Internal Audio to "Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo Input"
b) the Profile for Internal Audio to "Analog Stereo Duplex"
(although I'm not sure if those are correct, and probably other settings would work).
I also went to the KDE System Settings menu (Kickoff > Computer > System Settings > Multimedia) and moved PulseAudio to the top of the list.
Oh, and I also ran AlsaMixer (enter the command "alsamixer" without the quotes under your own username in a Konsole/Terminal window) and made sure nothing was muted and that my sound
card was selected (Press F6 to select it). Don't forget to use the Tab key in AlsaMixer to view the sliders on other pages.
While I was tinkering with all the settings in PulseAudio Volume Control I had XBMC
running and playing an MP3 track but with no sound
coming from the speakers. When I did the above, glorious music suddenly started coming from the speakers.
